Well I've shot my M77R in 25-06 to death. Ruger no longer offers a 25-06 anything so........

I'm just about to pull the trigger on a Vanguard S2 synthetic stock in 25-06. But before I do I've learned to research any brand before I take the leap.
Searching reviews I find very few current negative comments on this Japanese made rifle. Most seem to love it for it's value and performance.

Reading Weatherby's warranty policy I'm a little concerned. (Ruger has me spoiled when it comes to customer service).

Anyone have experience with the Vanguard S2 and / or with CS at Weatherby?
Anything you can share would be much appreciated.
:thankyou:

I've heard nothing but good things about the vanguard. I'd go for it.

Miroku made the Browning B-92. If they make the Vanguard, I would expect high quality. Other than that gem-of-knowledge, I dunno.

Howa is Japanese? I'll be durned. Somehow I thought it was a neighbor of Sako. Jeez, wrong continent even.

I do not know if Howa and Weatherby are made to the same specs.

only what Ive heard from owners ,that they have some of the same mfg characteristics.
